Thank you for that additional information.
As you know the NHS moves slowly when it comes to requests like yours :(
The best thing you can do is try to get your GP to act as your advocate and push through your request for and upright MRI.
Unfortunately, given the way the NHS works, and depending on where you live, you might be stuck waiting 6 months or so to get an upright MRI completed. :(
Another option would be to hire a solicitor to legally argue on your behalf and speed up your access to this MRI.
Of course, if you were in the USA, you could probably get an upright MRI done this week......different health care systems, different problems :(
Does this make sense to you?
